Brand new sealed limited edition 7" RSD release.
David Gilmour has released “Yes, I Have Ghosts,” the Pink Floyd guitarist’s first new music in five years. The song is a collaboration with his daughter, harpist Romany Gilmour, and his wife, the author and lyricist Polly Samson. The song was previously part of the audiobook version of Samson’s latest novel, A Theatre for Dreamers. Prior to the spread of COVID-19, the trio was planning to promote the book during a “series of shows blending words and music.”
In a press release, Gilmour writes, “I was working on this song just as we went in to lockdown and had to cancel a session with backing singers but, as it turned out, the solution was right here and I couldn’t be happier with the way Romany’s voice blends with mine and her beautiful harp playing has been another revelation.”
Samson adds, “Collaborating with David—as I have done many times over the last 30 years, writing songs for both Pink Floyd and his solo albums—we were able to bring together the worlds of literature and music to enhance the listening experience and connect with audiences in a way which I don’t think has been done before.”
A Theater of Dreamers takes place among an “expat bohemian community of poets, painters, and musicians.” The novel’s cast of characters includes a young Leonard Cohen.
